's going to be 5-3 if kennedy goes with the conservative. if the court does strike down the use of race, i'm hoping it will be limited too the university of texas because the issue there is they have a race neutral program in the top 10%, and they're achieving some diversity with that, and the additional consideration of race should be permitted. it permits the university to get diversity within diversity, and i think that's very important. i think through the top 10% plan, the university did a very thorough study after having had it for five years before implementing race as one of the factors they looked a deciding it was necessary and important to get the classrooms filled the way they wanted them filled. the university has that right, but, you know, if the court strikes it down, i hope it's limited to the program in texas, and it doesn't force every university around the country to have to try to implement some race neutral way because when you use a race neutral way, like the top 10% plan to achieve diversity in a university setting, what you're doing is essentially promoting the fact
